[Video] Serato DJ 1.2 and Multi-FX
Serato DJ 1.2 is now available for download to all Serato DJ controller users. The update also finally brings the Serato DJ software upgrade to Serato Itch users who own the Vestax VCI-380, the Numark NS7, Mixdeck, Mixdeck Express and the Pioneer DDJ-S1. The Serato DJ 1.2 upgrade also brings with it the new Multi-FX feature which allows DJ's to chain up to six different effects together at once.
Users of the popular Vestax VCI-380, the Numark NS7, and the Pioneer DDJ-S1 will now get the full Serato DJ treatment for Free with all of its cool features and new layout. I'll be looking into the VCI-380 with Serato DJ shortly and write a few words regarding the upgrade, so stay tuned! The Numark Mixdeckand Mixdeck Express also take advantage of the new look and more features as well but they come at the regular price.
The new Multi-FX feature finally allows users to take advantage of all of their six FX buttons and knobs that are traditionally used this way for Traktor or Virtual DJ software. The Multi-FX allows new ways for DJ's to control the new iZotope powered FX in Serato DJ. Check out the video below for a quick tutorial.
Serato DJ 1.2 also gives users a free 14-day trial to those who have a Serato DJ Intro controller. This will let DJ's know if they really want the upgrade features before they commit or to give more incentive for people to upgrade. Either way, it's a great move by the Serato team.

Multi FX Mode
The new Multi FX Mode allows easy control and extra creativity when using Serato DJ’s FX powered by iZotope. Multi FX Mode allows you to select up to three effects per FX bank with each FX controlled by one parameter, the FX Depth. The effects in each FX bank are chained, so one effect feeds into the next, and the beats multiplier is applied to all effects in each unit. Both units can be assigned to the same channel, allowing up to six effects to be used per channel!The same effects available in Single FX Mode are available in Multi FX Mode, as well some new additional presets.
